I drove back from Harwell village on 15/10/18 to the Rowstock roundabout and turned to go towards the Chiltern Interchange. There are a lot of street lights from Rowstock up to Chiltern that are not working including some new street lights that would have been installed when the new roundabout and slip road was built. Beofre the clock go back and for safety could these be checked and made sure that they are working. As you approach the Chiltern Interchange, there is a new pedestrian crossing and having no street lights endangers them.

  • Thank you for your report, to enable us to log the fault to the correct unit can you please advise using the attached map the street light number you are referring to. If the unit is not on the map this would not be owned/maintained by Oxfordshire County Council and would need to be reported to the developer/landowner direct. Unfortunately we do not keep records of private lights.

  • I was driving in a car. Unfortunately there were too many street lights out to take the numbers. Not just 1 or 2. All the lights are located on the main road from Rowstock to Chiltern interchange.
